While other organizations provide veterans with an escape from reality, The Eden Project provides veterans with the tools to deal with reality.
No one knows veterans like other veterans. There have been dozens of studies over the past several years and all indicated the same thing; the reintegration process is more effective when it is done within a peer group.
The PHOE3NIX FORCE® is our proprietary peer group for veterans. Our concept embodies the “rise out of the ashes” spirit of a warrior with the emphasis on our 3 Es - Engaging, Encouraging, Empowering each other. Each peer group is made up of 6 to 8 warriors who focus on their personal strengths, developing closer relationships with others, learning to appreciate life, being open to new possibilities and deepening their spiritual development.

Couples’ “Date Nights”
Very few couples grow closer to each other during a deployment. Generally, they grow apart. The spouse who stays home develops a routine and learns to cope and do things alone. The returning service member comes home and feels like they no longer fit in. Our date nights are designed to create those special moments and memories that couples need to reconnect. We offer a variety of different dates that include massages, yoga, cooking, arts and crafts, and community service, while discussing topics like communication skills, intimacy, personality styles and a few others. Whether you separated from the service recently or years ago and want to have a fun date with your spouse, register below and join us as we help guide you to a stronger deeper relationship.
Coming soon “Caregiver Workshops”
An underserved and overworked group of people are the caregivers. This dedicated group of caring, loving, selfless people give of themselves sometimes to their own detriment. Oftentimes, they lose their identity while taking care of their loved one. It is because of this selfless service to others that we are working to put together a specialized program for caregivers. If this is something you are interested in learning more about, please click the tab below and we will contact you with more information.
Our philosophy is to create this holistic, multi-disciplinary support network in each community to facilitate reintegration for warriors and their families. While there are many programs designed to provide career guidance and job placement to veterans, there are no programs currently addressing the fundamental issues of reintegration or career retention. Our focus is on these two areas.
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
The Eden Project is a certifying agency for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award. We give thousands of hours a year in volunteer hours to local partners. Volunteering is a keep component of our process within our 4 pillars by providing that purpose that keeps our warriors engaged with each other and our community.
We also need volunteers to assist with events such as our golf tournament, hosting peer to peer events, making phone calls, packing Christmas gift boxes and much more. Please consider helping us within YOUR passion area!
